1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 shallots, minced
1 cup vodka
1 cup chicken stock
1 can crushed tomatoes (32 ounces)
Coarse salt and pepper
16 ounces of pasta, I recommend penne rigate or angel hair
½ cup heavy cream
20 leaves fresh basil, shredded or torn

Heat large skillet over moderate heat.

Add oil, butter, garlic, and shallots.

Gently sauté shallots for 3-5 minutes to develop their sweetness.

Add vodka to the pan.

Reduce vodka by half, this will take 2-3 minutes.

Add chicken stock, tomatoes.

Bring sauce to a bubble and reduce heat to simmer.

Season with salt and pepper.

Add cream when sauce is done simmering.

Mix with pasta and serve.

Serve with crusty bread
